New Qualifications Needed For One To Vie For MCA Post In Their Ward

MCAs (Members of the County Assembly) play an important role in society. He is a government official who is responsible for keeping track of and maintaining relationships with the residents of his ward as well as the rest of the country.


MCAs play a number of important functions, the most important of which is to represent citizens' grievances and viewpoints in the county assembly.


An MCA usually plays a key role in ensuring that the inhabitants of his ward have better living conditions by properly representing them in the county assembly and providing essential basic government services.


If one believes he or she can be of substantial assistance to the inhabitants of his or her ward by providing excellent service, now is the ideal and most critical time. As the general elections of 2022 approach, one should make adequate preparations.

MCAs earn a hefty base salary and a slew of other perks in addition to providing critical services to citizens. The following is a list of the requirements for applying for the position.


The first and most important condition is that you must have been a Kenyan citizen for at least ten years.


A person must also be free of dual citizenship. The sole exception is when a person holds dual citizenship as a result of a court order.


It is necessary to be a registered voter. Everyone's democratic obligation, like that of any other citizen, is to vote in elections, hence one must be properly registered as a voter.


The minimum age requirement is 18 years old. This means that any youth over the age of 18 can vote, participate in elections, and even run for MCA.


Before election day, one must be free of criminal charges and have not served time in prison in the previous six months. A good conduct certificate is required.


Any government employee functioning or working in any public sector other than parliament is prohibited.


One must be free of any snatching or misappropriation of public property offences for which they have been convicted.


A person must be a member of a legitimately registered political party or an independent member.


In terms of education, the constitution stipulates that by 2022, candidates must hold a degree from a recognised university in order to be considered for the position.
